    i did it just like the vid, several times, when his opens the installer like mine did the first time, mine tries to open a prompt and closes right away.
    im thinking thats because its not installing the tools folder.

    maybe this would be more easily fixed if you copied your platform-tools folder for me?

    Thanks

    I doubt that would work because I believe it has to be installed not just copied over and I may be on a different version of windows. Vista 32bit here.

    Yeah I don't think that's any good either. Needs to be installed properly.

    ok i got the installer to come back up woohoo lol
    i still dont have that folder but maybe the installer will put it in, time will tell lol

    i uninstalled everything, went into hidden folders and deleted everything android, adb, and sdk.
    then i wiped again and rebooted, then reinstalled.

    ill post back with results after its done updating

    Thanks again

    ok after all that drama im back at the same spot with the same problem lol
    adb shows my device when booted but in bootloader it doesnt see it, so the unlock command does nothing

    Wow that is unfortunate. One last shot here. [How To] Unlock Bootloader & Root Galaxy Nexus.

    It's way more automated method of doing things but I have tried it before and it works.

    i see the problem, it doesnt have a driver for fastboot
    im trying to fix it but not having any luck, i tried reinstalling the drivers and it didnt help.
    is there a special driver file i need other than the one at droid-life?
